Hello Again

Hello! I feel like it's about time to start blogging again! I hope you've been doing well in your corner of the world since we last spoke. During my blog break, we 'cat-sat' for a friend of mine who was renovating and then moving house. Midg was with us for about five weeks, and after he spent the first afternoon behind the couch in total shock, we got along quite well. He is fourteen years-old and quite set in his ways, but it was a delight to have him around. I have never had a pet, so I was quite fascinated just to watch him do his thing...


Sometimes he watched me do mine...

Sometimes he really didn't want to be watched at all...

A lot of the time he watched the birds in the front yard with eager interest...



And more often than not, a nap was the activity of choice.

We are thinking now about getting our own pet. I went to Save-a-Dog today (who also have cats - they're at http://www.saveadog.org.au/) and there are so many animals looking for homes. If you are going to get a pet, please think about adopting rather than buying from a pet store. Midg was an adoptee and I saw so many sad canine and feline eyes this morning...

Welcome back!

I'm sure you could give a poor cat a good home. ^^

Welcome back! We never bought cats, too; they just came, or we saved some from some farm,ers who did not care about them...

Glad to read you again. Old Midg looks so lovely. Yes, you definitely should consider to give a homeless pet a new home. They can bring so much into ones life.
